Block 61 - Khazzan and Makarem Gas Fields DevelopmentTight Gas - Execution
|Location||Center West of Oman - Oman|
|BP and OOCEP signed an agreement with the Government of Oman to extend the license area, paving the way for further development of the giant Khazzan tight gas field. The Phase 1 project, sanctioned in December 2013, is more than 80 percent complete and remains on schedule to deliver first gas in late 2017. Subject to final approval, Khazzan Phase 2 project is expected to come on stream around 2020.|
|Scope||Block 61 covers 2,800 square kilometers in the Al-Dahirah Governorate, at center west of Oman, tight natural gas fields have originally discovered in 1993 but have remained undeveloped due to the complexity of their 'tight gas' reservoirs.
The two fields could potentially yield reserves of 100-120 trillion cu.ft of gas from previous estimation of 30-40 trillion cu.ft of gas. All wells will be connected to the nearby Saih Rawl gas plant. The two fields contain a mix of sour and sweet gas in four tight reservoirs: Barik, Miqrat, Amri and Buah.
BP is planning the development of Khazzan and Makarem project with:
– 400 wells to be deployed in clusters
– Hydro fracturing equipment
– Water treatment and water disposal facilities
– 500 kilometers gathering system of flowlines
– Gas central processing facility (CPF)
– 100 kilometers export pipeline
– Offsite and Utilities
The BP Khazzan central processing facility should have a capacity of: 1 billion cubic feet per day (cf/d) of natural gas and 25,000 barrels per day (b/d) of condensate.
